Paddle & A Pour on the Milwaukee River w/ Milwaukee Riverkeeper

June 18, 5:30 pm-9:00 pm

We are very lucky to have Milwaukee Riverkeeper here in Milwaukee as their mission is to protect, improve and advocate for water quality, riparian wildlife habitat, and sound land management in the Milwaukee, Menomonee, and Kinnickinnic River Watersheds.

Please join us for a guided paddle with Milwaukee Riverkeeper! This season, we will be offering 3 guided paddles with Milwaukee Riverkeeper. On this trip in June, we will paddle up the Milwaukee River and take in the sites and sounds of downtown Milwaukee. We will be talking about the state of the Milwaukee River and different points of interest as we go. We will paddle as time allows and return back to MKC’s dock around 9pm. During this trip, we will exit our kayaks near the turn-around point and enjoy a complimentary beer and appetizer at a local restaurant.
